The Florida Panthers have cast a wide net in their search for a new GM and, according to team president Matt Caldwell, they are getting close in making a final decision.
Expect an announcement soon — perhaps as early as Wednesday morning.
It has been just over three weeks since the Panthers officially parted ways with longtime general manager Dale Tallon and Caldwell has been busy interviewing potential replacements.
Caldwell spoke with FloridaHockeyNow.com on Tuesday evening on a variety of subjects including: What the team is looking for a new GM, whether or not owner Vinnie Viola has set an internal salary cap for next season and when the decision was made to move on from Tallon.
“We have to get this right,” Caldwell said of the GM search. “We have to get this team right. We are getting real close to a decision.
“We have some great candidates.”
